Five years after fire killed Mexico kids, parents don’t see justice done

World Today

It has been 5-years since a tragic fire in northern Mexico killed 49 infants at the ABC Nursery School.The children were napping when the blaze broke out — and were trapped inside the burning building.Parents of the victims are still waiting for justice.

Colossal safety lapses, including locked exits and no sprinklers, provided enough blame to spread across an alphabet soup of government agencies and the private contractors who ran the school for the Mexican Social Security Institute.

Still, no one has been sentenced for the tragedy at the preschool, though two mid-level officials from the federal agency are behind bars facing trial. Numerous other suspects facing minor charges were freed on bail. No top bureaucrats have been charged.CCTV’s Franc Contreras reports from Mexico City.
